According to a BBC
report, Stadco has proposed a restructuring of its UK operations that would see the closure of its base in Llanfyllin, Powys, which has 129 employees and specialises in aluminium and steel stampings, as well as painted assemblies. The company is owned by Magna International.
David Griffiths, Unite’s regional officer, said: “This news has come out of nowhere and has caused immense distress to the workforce. Stadco are one of the largest manufacturing employers in Powys and an award winning manufacturer.
This planned closure would be an enormous blow to the economy of mid Wales and would be devastating for the workers and their families.
“Unite will do everything it can to fight to retain these jobs, we will leave no stone unturned in our pursuit with Stadco and Magna the parent company, to find a solution to this planned closure.
“Magna has committed themselves to social responsibility within their mission statement as a company. We expect them to live up to their word and work with Unite and the Welsh government to explore every avenue available to prevent closure.”
